Independent Auditors' Review Report

 

 

 

The Board of Directors

Petroleum Development Corporation:

 

We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet of Petroleum Development Corporation and subsidiaries as of June 30, 1999, and the related condensed consolidated statements of income for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 1999 and 1998 and the related condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six-month periods ended June 30, 1999 and 1998. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management.

We conducted our review in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical review procedures to financial data and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, the objective of which is the expression of

Based on our review, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the condensed consolidated financial statements referred to above for them to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

We have previously audited, in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, the consolidated balance sheet of Petroleum Development Corporation and subsidiaries as of December 31, 1998 and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated March 5, 1999, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements.

5. Business Segments (in Thousands)

PDC's operating activities can be divided into three major segments: drilling and development, natural gas sales, and well operations. The Company drills natural gas wells for Company-sponsored drilling partnerships and retains an interest in each well. The Company also engages in oil and gas sales to residential, commerical and industrial end-users. The Company charges Company-sponsored partnerships and other third parties competitive industry rates for well operations and gas ga

6. Commitments and Contingencies

The nature of the independent oil and gas industry involves a dependence on outside investor drilling capital and involves a concentration of gas sales to a few customers. The Company sells natural gas to various public utilities and industrial customers.

Substantially all of the Company's drilling programs contain a repurchase provision where Investors may tender their partnership units for repurchase at any time beginning with the third anniversary of the first cash distribution. The provision provides that the Company is obligated to purchase an aggregate of 10% of the initial subscriptions per calendar year (at a minimum price of three times the most recent 12 months' cash distributions), only if such units are tendered, subject t

The Company is not party to any legal action that would materially affect the Company's results of operations or financial condition.

Total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 1999 were $21.1 million compared to $19.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 1998, an increase of approximately $1.9 million, or 9.9 percent. Such increase was primarily a result of increased drilling revenues and oil and gas sales. Drilling revenues for the three months ended June 30, 1999 were $9.0 million compared to $8.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 1998, an increase of approximately $80

Year 2000 Issue

State of Readiness

The Year 2000 Issue is the risk that computer programs using two-digit data fields will fail to properly recognize the year 2000, with the result being business interruption due to computer system failures by the Company's software or hardware or that of government entities, service providers and vendors. The Company has assessed the extent of the Year 2000 Issues affecting the Company. The Company believes that the new computer system including operating software installed during 1

The Company has initiated formal communications with its significant suppliers and service providers to determine the extent to which the Company may be vulnerable to their failure to correct their own Year 2000 issues. It is expected that full identification will be completed by September 30, 1999. To the extent that responses to Year 2000 readiness are unsatisfactory, the Company intends to take appropriate action, including identifying alternative suppliers and service providers

Cost of Readiness

Expenditures related to Year 2000 remediation did not exceed $35,000. These expenditures include costs related to the data processing transition, a new computer system, purchase of software, modifications and implementation costs. A portion of these costs were capitalized and will be amortized over the estimated useful life. The remainder of these costs have been expensed as incurred. Management believes that the cost to become Year 2000 Compliant is not material to the Company's results of operations.

Risks of Year 2000 Issues

The Company presently believes the Year 2000 Issue will not present a materially adverse risk to the Company's future consolidated results of operations, liquidity, and capital resources. However, if the level of timely compliance by key suppliers or service providers is not sufficient, the Year 2000 Issue could have a material impact on the Company's operations including, but not limited to, increased operating costs, loss of customers or suppliers, loss of accounting functions, inc

Contingency Plan

The Company has a contingency plan, and will implement it on systems that remains non-compliant as of December 31, 1999, if any.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company funds its operations through a combination of cash flow from operations, capital raised through stock offerings and drilling partnerships, and use of the Company's credit facility. Operational cash flow is generated by sales of natural gas from the Company's well interests, well drilling and operating activities for the Company's investor partners, natural gas gathering and transportation, and natural gas marketing. Cash payments from Company-sponsored partnerships are u

Sales volumes of natural gas have continued to increase while natural gas prices fluctuate monthly. The Company's natural gas sales prices are subject to increase and decrease based on various market-sensitive indices. A major factor in the variability of these indices is the seasonal variation of demand for the natural gas, which typically peaks during the winter months. The volumes of natural gas sales are expected to continue to increase as a result of continued drilling activit

On June 22, 1999 the Company executed an Amendment to its Credit Agreement with First National Bank of Chicago. The amendement provides a $20.0 million borrowing base, subject to adequate oil and gas reserves. The Company has activated $10.0 million of such borrowing base, and has at its discretion the ability to activate the additional $10.0 million. As of June 30, 1999, no balance is outstanding on the line of credit. Interest accrues at prime, with LIBOR (London Interbank Marke

The Company closed its first drilling program of 1999 in the second quarter and has drilled the wells in the second and third quarters of 1999. The Company will close its second drilling program of 1999 in September, 1999 and will drill the wells during the third and fourth quarters of 1999. Additional programs are scheduled to close in November and December of 1999. The Company generally invests, as its equity contribution to each drilling partnership, an additional sum approximat

The Company continues to pursue capital investment opportunities in producing natural gas properties as well as its plan to participate in its sponsored natural gas drilling partnerships, while pursuing opportunities for operating improvements and costs efficiencies. Management believes that the Company has adequate capital to meet its operating requirements.

New Accounting Standard

Statement of Accounting Standards No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (SFAS No. 133), was issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board in June, 1998. Statement 133 standardized the accounting for derivative instruments, including certain derivative instruments embedded in other contracts. SFAS No. 133 is effective for years beginning after June 15, 2000; however, early adoption is permitted. On adoption, the provisions of SFAS No. 133
